More good news!

DH came home last Friday with the new Paper Essentials magazine for me. I don't buy many card making mags now as I just don't have time to read them and I have a pile of them waiting to be read. I always have a quick peep if I'm out and if something takes my fancy I will buy it. Anyway, he brought the mag home and I've scanned through it two or three times so far. Last night I wasn't feeling too good so after hubby went to bed I curled up on the settee with a blanket to have a nose at my mag, only to find that a piece of my work has been published! I hadn't even noticed it before. lolI made my little maze book as part of last years comp in which I was a runner up but didn't realise that it would be used in the mag. I felt all giddy when I saw it. Apart from competition entries and adverts in bridal mags it is only the second time my work has been published and it's a wonderful feeling.
Now for my second piece of good news....................When I entered the competition in PE last year, I also entered the one in CM & P. I saw loads of blogs where people had been winners or runners up in different competitions and just assumed my work hadn't been place as I hadn't heard anything. However, yesterday morning I got a letter from Kirstie (the editor of CM & P) informing me that I have won second prize in the English Paper Company category. My prize is £150 worth of English Paper Company products. Yay...........go me!!! LOL
I am such a bad blogger at the moment but work has got in the way. Hopefully I will be back later with a couple of pictures (but don't hold your breath:))
Thanks very much to those of you who keep visiting and leaving your lovely comments, they are really appreciated.
